President Moon Jae-in and First Lady Kim Jung-sook received the AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine on Monday, but accumulated public distrust of vaccination may not vanish quickly, experts point.
A few years ago, a false claim that the measles, mumps, and rubella virus (MMR) vaccine causes autism spread the vaccination fear, pulling down inoculation rate and leading to the resurge of measles. The research paper was withdrawn later but still serves as the basis for avoiding vaccination.
